Beginning Ruby and Rails
Ruby is no longer the "unknown" language. It has become known by developers around the world and is the preferred language by many. Ruby gets the best from the object-oriented, functional and imperative worlds, but most of all it is fun! However, Ruby is not a "beginners" language and this track will introduce the language in the best possible way. It is almost impossible not to have heard about Ruby on Rails!

We will get an overview of Rails and get you ready to build your first Rails application!
